The Dalai Lama and the mosquito
When I was in college, I attended a wonderful Symposium at Middlebury College on "Spirit and Nature" and one of the keynote speakers was the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso. There to film a documentary for PBS was Bill Moyers which is a great video, and you can watch the whole thing here - http://billmoyers.com/content/spirit-nature/.
A gem of the video is this brief interaction between the Dalai Lama and Bill Moyers, talking about our relationship with nature - even down to the pesky mosquito who bites us. Here is exhibited not only the Dalai Lama's compassion, but also his quick sense of humor and deep humanity!
